I remember a long time ago, there was a write up of a 68000-based Unix
box that was going to be released for an estimated $600 - back before
Linux, when your choices were Real Unix at $,$$$ or Minix on an IBM

It never materialized, AFAIK, but that would have been a nice toy ;^)

(No, I don't want a UnixPC/AT&T 7300 - had several, but back then it
would have been cool)
